Molly & Jaymie attended the Hill Country Heritage Sale in Fredericksburg, Texas hosted by customers Rick & Tracey Friedrich of River Ranch.

​They had a booth where they met with current and prospective website customers. They also offered online bidding and internet broadcasting services to those who couldn't attend via their service, Hired Hand Live. Below we have provided an overview of the result from the sales.

Special thanks to Rick & Tracey Friedrich of River Ranch for including us in their successful weekend.

"Having Hired Hand on site is such a great asset to those of us who are unable to attend longhorn industry sales. While we would love to be there to enjoy time with our longhorn family, sometimes our hectic work schedules keep us from being able to attend. But, with Molly and Jaymie onsite, watching and bidding online is the next best thing to being there!" 
- Stacey Schumacher, Schumacher Cattle
